What Is E-Prescribing Software?
E-prescribing is the process of electronically generating and transmitting a prescription order directly from a healthcare provider to a patient’s pharmacy of choice. In other words, doctors can create and send a patient’s prescription using their computer or mobile device, rather than using manual methods (e.g., phone calls and faxes) to contact pharmacies.
Electronic prescriptions are transmitted through private, secure and closed networks maintained by e-prescribing software vendors. These networks are able to connect with the vast majority of pharmacies across the country.
